Script And Direction Analysis : The script of the movie lacks volume and meaning . It does not go is either way , space drama or a romance .Director Mortem Tyldum has made a mash up of several genres attempting desperately to make it a interstellar thriller but fails miserably .

Performances : Jennifer Lawrence performance is good but Pratts charm needed to be balanced out to capture the doom and frustrations of 2 individuals fated to spend the remaining years travelling through space .

Final Words : Though the movie is visually fantastic and special effects are sleek and beautiful but  too slow paced and directionless
